October 18-19, 2018 • The New York Stock Exchange • One World Trade Center
We are pleased to announce that our 2018 Champions Forum will be held in New York City, the financial capital of the world, at two very special venues: The New York Stock Exchange and One World Trade Center.
We believe that New York City and these special venues will provide a unique backdrop for us to gather together as core stakeholders in Kingdom Advisors. We will discuss and strategize about this growing speciality of biblically wise financial advice. The Forum will provide you the opportunity to fellowship with like-minded peers, receive a stakeholder's report on Kingdom Advisors, provide input on key initiatives at Kingdom Advisors, and be encouraged spiritually and professionally. We also have designed special excursion opportunities for your spouse.
We are also thrilled to be hosting optional events before and after the Forum to enrich your time in New York City. The tour of the 9/11 Memorial, and dinner at the world famous Carmine’s followed by the broadway show, Come From Away provide additional opportunities for you to have meaningful time with your spouse and your peers. We look forward to being with you and your spouse in October!
An exclusive gathering for Kingdom Advisors Champions designed to maximize your Kingdom Impact through strategic input, fellowship with like-minded peers, and unique opportunities for personal and professional development.
